Baltimore’s luxury hotels are designed to spoil every type of traveler. From the Inner Harbor to Mount Vernon, to the heart of downtown and everywhere in between, Charm City knows how to treat a guest. Foodies will devour Chesapeake inspired plates, history buffs will pore over each building’s heritage, and those who need nothing more than a good massage and a cocktail will be right at home here, too. If you’re headed to the Monumental City, these luxury hotels in Baltimore show case the city at its best.

You don’t need to taste the premium whiskey in the Cannon Room or boneless petit filet mignon in the Rec Pier Chop House to savor Sagamore Pendry’s luxurious style. Simply sauntering through the lobby of this Baltimore luxury hotel to the pool on the harbor front shows how well refined this propety’s aesthetic embodies the city’s history and character. When you watch fireworks over the harbor with a Sagamore Rye in hand – the colorful sparks as vibrant as the city itself – you’ll see why Sagamore Pendry is nothing short of glorious.

2. The Ivy Hotel

The Ivy Hotel is ranked as one of the best five-star hotels in Baltimore and in the country, though they invite you to make yourself completely at home. From Champagne on arrival to afternoon tea, to whiskey tastings and midnight snacks, you’re free to roam the property and indulge in whatever activities suit your desires. In-room spa services, billiards, and cocktails in the serve-yourself Mansion Bar (along with a curated Chesapeake Bay menu at Magdalena) are only the tip of the iceberg.

3. Hilton Baltimore Inner Harbor

Spend one night here and you’ll see why the Hilton Baltimore Inner Harbor knocks it out of the park. It’s so close to Oriole Park at Camden Yards that you could practically catch a foul ball. The Executive Lounge has an excellent view of the ballpark, and room service would be happy to send up some peanuts and Cracker Jack (or a burger and Jack Daniels) to your door. When the game is over, feel free to relax in the heated indoor pool, whirlpool or sauna all night long.

5. Hotel Indigo Baltimore Downtown

The historic yet hip Mount Vernon neighborhood is the site for Hotel Indigo, a luxurious and approachable place for you to get properly acquainted with this classic seaport city. Wine Wednesdays in the library and customized in-room massages will keep you relaxed all week long. Literary fans and foodies need look no further than the in-house restaurant Poets Modern Cocktails and Eats. We suggest claiming the bi-level suite with wet bar so you can entertain any new friends you make during your stay.

6. Hotel RL Baltimore Inner Harbor

Hotel RL offers far more than accommodation; it’s a meeting place on the Inner Harbor for Baltimore’s vibrant communities. Local art adorns the walls, taking your eyes on a creative journey from the game room to the communal lobby space. Live entertainment plays on the Living Stage while you grab a cup of custom coffee from Victrola Coffee Roasters and hang out along the waterfront with new friends all night. When it’s time to turn in, your executive suite’s ultra-comfortable king mattress will send you to sleep with ease.

7. Royal Sonesta Harbor Court Baltimore

Is it the oversized Ambassador Suite, the picturesque Charm City skyline views, or the barrel-aged cocktails that make the Royal Sonesta Harbor Court feel so luxe? We tend to think it’s all of the above and then some. With Harborplace and the Gallery close by for shopping – not to mention a number of great riverside seafood restaurants – you’ll have trouble keeping track of every reason why this hotel rightly deserves its impeccable reputation.

8. Kimpton Hotel Monaco Baltimore

Climb aboard this ride to the peak of luxury in the Kimpton Hotel Monaco Baltimore, Inner Harbor. Centrally located downtown, this century-old building beckons you to indulge in Charm City’s most refined offerings. Wake up with complimentary coffee, and loosen up on the yoga mat in your room before a revitalizing hot stone massage or a Maryland jumbo lump crab cake delivered to your door. Better still, try both; at Kimpton Hotel Monaco everything is just a phone call away.

9. Renaissance Baltimore Harborplace Hotel

See the best of the city from one of the top luxury hotels in Baltimore on the Inner Harbor at Renaissance Baltimore Harborplace. Carrera marble countertops and a luxurious shower await you in bathrooms attached to high-tech suites. Grab your favorite Starbucks order in the lobby cafe, then casually walk down to the National Aquarium, Maryland Science Center, and American Visionary Art Museum. Head back to the lobby bar for crab cakes and cocktails before taking a dip in the indoor pool.

10. Canopy By Hilton Baltimore Harbor Point

Chain Hotel, Luxury

Harbor views from the ninth-floor terrace; complimentary wine and beer tastings; a special gift to welcome you into your river view suite. There are many reasons to stay at the lavish Canopy By Hilton. With Southern-inspired seafood specials at Cindy Lou’s Fish House, and just 2mi (3km) from Oriole Park, the complimentary bicycles in the lobby will dare you to try and find anywhere more stylish than Canopy on Harbor Point.
